With roots in Punjab in Northern India, rumour has it that the famous Moti Mahal restaurant in Delhi designed this delicious curry. Also known as “butter chicken”, this dish is traditionally made by cooking the chicken in a hot oven (or tandoor) and then simmering it in the curry sauce which is then garnished with fenugreek leaves.

Added a few sliced mushrooms and again very impressed. Put some fresh coriander and a spoonful of mint sauce into the salad. Will try some mild onion next time.

If i was to make this dish again I would use chicken breast rather than chicken thighs. It also goes well with a garlic naan bread.

Loved it! Easy to do. Used turkey. Would marinade for longer next time and add some veg with it. Wasn’t too rich and has more of a kick than expected.
